It wasn't great but.....
25 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It wasn't the greatest film but as low-no budget movies go, it kept my interest. It wasn't very scary and there was a lack of suspense. To say there was no talent associated with this film, well let's just put down the hater-aid. AJ Hammond, who played Mohammad seemed extremely well trained in the craft. Marcoux was convincing as well. I liked Ginny's fight scene with Marcoux. I'm not saying there wasn't over and under acting (by some) peppered through out. It's hard to not let bad editing and\or writing overshadow new talent but I believe that some of these actors will go on to "make it" and many critics will be forced to eat their words.
